It was just a week ago that Nasty Gal announced that they would be showing their debut collection at New York Fashion Week this year. We were excited, as you can imagine, to see it in September, so imagine our surprise (and delight) when we discovered that the collection is already available for purchase online, and with free overnight shipping, no less! The eclectic retailer, which started as an eBay vintage shop before expanding to independent e-retail, has expanded with lightning quickness, and we’re psyched to see their mix of sexy, sometimes very boundary pushing pieces with ultra cool, on trend pieces that they curate for their store reflected in a collection. Check out our favorite pieces after the jump!
It was really hard to choose our three fave looks from the new Nasty Gal collection.

We knew from the initial announcement images that the Nasty Gal collection was going to be a mix of body con dresses and bondage-inspired pieces, and our hunches were 100% correct. The looks range from the ’80s inspired dress pictured above, called The Network Dress ($128.00), which would look right at home in Brett Easton Ellis’ Less Than Zero, or even, moving into the ’90s, on a character in Clueless, with its sweetheart neckline and sharply padded shoulders, to the amazingly slouchy, dolman sleeved Corrupted Sweater ($128.00), which, with its mint green, pink, and blue color scheme and pixelated water design, doesn’t look at all “corrupted” to us. Also on our must have list (our credit cards are currently shivering in fear within our wallets) is the awesome Reboot Moto Jacket ($159.00). The faux leather topper is styled like a classic motorcycle jacket, shrunken just enough to give it that perfect punk rock flair, and finished with contrast peach sleeves, making it seem almost like the glorious baby of the moto and varsity jackets. Be still our hearts, basically. And those are just our three favorites right now! We’re sure that we’ll end up loving every piece in the collection the more we gaze at it on our computer screens (but we have to get back to work!).
